HOLISTIC / SWEDISH MASSAGEPeople may refer to a body or a relaxing massage as a Holistic, Swedish or a Therapeutic massage.
WHAT IS HOLISTIC/SWEDISH MASSAGE?
Usually it is a full body massage that manipulates the soft tissues and relaxes tight muscles. We use various techniques with a combination of medium to deep pressure and relaxing strokes. Holistic therapy aims to treat the person as a “whole”, both physically and psychologically, benefiting the person in so many positive ways.
HOW CAN A MASSAGE HELP YOU?
Daily life impacts on our body in many ways. We can easily become tired, stressed, anxious and exhausted and are often so busy, but we all need to take the time out for some therapeutic relaxation time.
Physical and emotional stress can be reduced through therapeutic touch and many other problems can also be alleviated. Massage can create instant improvement in the quality of sleep and concentration, improve circulation and waste removal and encourage deeper, more relaxed breathing, allowing the mind to slow down, whilst energy is increased.

I’ve been seeing Helen for the last 3 years after issues with a trapped nerve in my neck. Helen’s massages really help keep this under control and are a little treat for me too! After each session I always come away feeling so relaxed. Highly recommended
